Campus Demonstration Garden

Est. 2018

On May 17, 2018, the Sustainable Agriculture Project Crew created a demonstration garden, located north of Au Sable Hall next to the arboretum. The garden is an extension of Grand Valley's Sustainable Agriculture Project (SAP).

The garden will serve as a tool to raise awareness about the SAP. The 15-by-15-foot space includes six raised garden beds, which mimic the size of a typical, homemade garden. 

Farm Manager, Youssef Darwich said, "We hope that when people walk by the garden, they will be inspired to visit the farm or start their own garden."
